About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for stopping by. It really is so difficult, finding the right person to share your innermost thoughts with. I can assure you that I will not judge you at all and am passionate about helping other people to reach their absolute potential, individually, or as a family. Life isn't always easy and there are often many challenges. Sometimes, these feel totally overwhelming and we are unsure of how we can deal with this. I aim to offer peace, space and time for you to explore whatever it is that is affecting you right now.

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor, but have trained in other areas, which enables me to draw upon a variety of techniques and approaches, in order to ensure the best therapeutic outcome for you. Please see the list below of the areas in which I specialise, but please bear in mind that it is not exhaustive.

I specialise in working with those affected by trauma, especially due to domestic violence. I work with children and young people aged 11+ for a local charity and within my own practice. I also work with adults.

Counselling can be daunting and it is really important that you feel comfortable with the person that you are working with. I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation, so that I am able to gain some insight in to what you are looking for. If we both decide to continue, we will then book you in an assessment.

Practice description

I work for a local charity seeing children and adolescents in their school environment and online/telephone, as a Therapeutic Counsellor and specialise in working with young people and families. The presenting issues range from bullying, anxiety, self harm, suicidal ideation, self-esteem issues, domestic violence, abuse, and more.

I find that where a child is in emotional distress, there is often a parent who feels confused and at a loss. This is where I can also help. By offering a safe environment and the tools to enable you, as a family, to communicate more effectively, I work with using a 'whole family' approach.

I will also work 1:1 with any child aged 11 and adults within a private setting. With my foundation as a person-centred counsellor, I will also draw upon other modalities to enable you and/or your child to find a way forward; challenging 'stuck' thought processes, exploring what causes your emotional distress; for example.

I host workshops within Primary and Secondary Schools, to all staff and to Early Years Practitioners. These include 'An Introduction to Mental Health' and 'Trauma & Attachment in The Early Years.' If this is required by a service, please contact me for more information.

I have co-facilitated group work, focusing on Abusive Behaviours. I also work for a charity, counselling victims of domestic violence. I specialise in this area, having undertaken many different forms of training related to abuse, neglect, narcissistic behaviours, domestic and sexual violence and trauma.
